So with Easter just around the corner it was time to set up a little playdate photoshoot.  We wanted to set up a kid-sized, budget-friendly dessert table perfect to get a “jump” start into spring!  The locale?  My backyard, the budget?  Minimal…so, I picked this location because of the natural, casual setting.  I loved how the lemons were starting to come in on the tree  so I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for a fun playdate setting.  Now, when planning for a small playdate…you don’t need much…we went with cupcakes & candy!!!  YUM!!!  What more do you need??  This look was achieved with things I already had that I pulled from my holiday fireplace decor, some newly designed printables, fabric scraps (you may recognize the aqua and lime damask fabric from Blake’s Winter Candyland), a fabulous coordinating banner and ribbon garland from Nancy of A to Zebra Celebrations, candy and some cupcakes from a local bakery.  Underneath the layered fabrics were tables from my playroom…just the right height for the kiddos to grab a treat!!

I thought mixing the fabric patterns kept thing a little less serious and set the tone for a playful table set-up.  Together, we styled this simple, yet oh-so-cute table that that is sure to get things-a-hoppin’

Once things were set up, Nancy dressed her beautiful girlies up in ah-dorable t-shirts by Whimsy Tots Boutique, gorgeous bracelets from 3 Little Birds Boutique, and darling hairbows by Fairy Dust Bows.

Also among the decor was a fun & festive sign from Our Hobby To Your Home.  For a cute little favor, small jars were filled with peanut m&m’s, then I embellished the jars with printables attached with coordinating twine from The Twinery.

Here is a pic from my fireplace before snagging stuff for the photoshoot (;  Look familiar??  I got all of this stuff from Target!!  Oh, how I love that place!!  The decorative porcelain jars are from Homegoods.

Here is a close ups on some of the awseome products from some amazing vendors

So, there it is…a fun, easy and budget friendly playdate!  Happy Spring!!

Oh yes!!  How much fun was this?? SO FUN!!  Darling Nancy and the super talent behind A to Zebra Celebrations, asked me if I would like to be featured in her news segment the week before Thanksgiving.   Ummmm….hmmm….YES! YES! YES!  She was asked to appear on ABC15 here locally in Phoenix on the Sonroan Living Show to display hosting an ornament exchange themed party.  She wanted me to design an invitation and incorporate her favorite pattern…ZEBRA!!  So that is what I did!
